Subject: More good stuff
Was inspired to go look for some shows form this tour after listening to the Dave's picks from the Fox in Atlanta on 11/30/80. Love that pick, and there is more great stuff here. Many standouts, but I am not sure I have heard an I Know You Rider like this. In the second jam, they bring it way down, quiet and delicate instead of fiery and ripping. Just exactly perfect. Thanks to all involved.

Nice Althea.
In the first set at about the 6:24 mark all the way through to the end of the song Jerry bangs out all the cosmic dust, knocking out all the spider webs to boot. He ends his solo with a beautiful high note thats trembeling at about the 7:23 mark,sending you off to a another planetary voyage,soaring through space, passing by all the diamond stars!

Whole second set rocks.
Sweet Cold Rain & Snow starter, hot China Rider,epic Estimated->Eyes, Great finish with Good Lovin' and Satisfaction...what more can I say. I love the 80's. 4 stars for the sound quality and 5 stars for the songs. 4****

After Drums is a Phil Lesh solo a la 1973, which turns into a jam that sounds kinda like Saint of Circumstance to me, before heading in a completely different direction.

Great performance. Some early, temporary technical problems regarding unbalanced sound levels of individual instruments/ microphones.

Ahhh, one from the Hollywood snortatorium. This was such a great venue for many years. Started here with the Dead and went north, Lakeland, Gainesville and up. This was a rockin' show. Parking lot was a great time also. Used to get there hours early to get the party started. Hated the long 2 lane highway to and from there though. Took hours to get out and home. Well worth it though! Bobby and Phil were really on their game that night. I have some great pics of them.

This is a great site. I can spend many an hour here. I have seen too many Dead shows to even begin to count but this site bring back some really great memories of a time that will never be again.

Gratefully a Dead Head for many years and hopefully many more to come.

I just started streaming this and the firts thing that I noticed was the high mix of drums and keyboards (to the point of Jerry, Bob and Phil being almost non existent in parts)....for Alabama anyway. Bill and Mickey sound awsome....just keeping time like mad. A lot of energy in the playing, Jerry is energetic in the vocals. The sound is a bit patchy (fades in and out for the mix). I havent listened to a lot from 1980, but this is making me want to dig thru the board here.

GSET - Really high energy from Bob and Brent...I'm enjoying it so far.

On the Road again!!!! HA! AWSOME : ) I love Bobby and this is a great addition to the list.

Overall worth a listen. Ill give this four stars since the mix is patch, but otherwise...great playing , good vocals, nice energy.

Damn I miss these guys....Peace!

Subject: 1st Love
This was my 4th show & where I met my first Love & lost her not long afterwards. I had hitch hiked down to Miami to do the Fla tour & record. The whole show rocked. A Long first set with Highlights including The Roses, On The Road Again, The Race Is On. Second set opened with a smoking Cold Rain & Snow & then surprise Encore of the 1st Satisfaction since 1965.
